It was at Barnet that Sir Lewis Fitzlewis was killed. Upon his death the manor was taken by the Duke of Gloucester (later Richard II). However, Richard Fitzlewis, the son of the fallen knight, had recovered Cranham Hall by 1487.
Richard Fitzlewis had four wives. The fourth, whose name is unknown, survived him and became Cranham's first Lady of the Manor. The daughter of this fourth marriage, Eliza Fitzlewis, then inherited from her mother. Upon marriage, Eliza was succeeded as Lord of the manor by her husband, Sir John Mordaunt (the dates are uncertain, but we are now in the first quarter of the sixteenth century). Sir John Mordaunt died on June 2, 1543.
